Light Sources 2004 Proceedings of the 10th International Symposium on the Science and Technology of Light Sources (Institute of Physics Conference Series)
Held every three years, The International Symposia on the Science and Technology of Light Sources (LS) provide a unique forum for the international community of engineers, scientists, research organizations, and academia from the lighting industry. In Light Sources 2004, leaders in their respective fields discuss the latest findings and exciting developments in light source research. Contributors provide valuable analyses and discussions on topics such as incandescent and halogen sources, fluorescent discharge sources, lamp-related electronic gear, high intensity discharge sources, diagnostics, solid state sources, modeling, dielectric barrier sources, excimer devices, and nonlighting applications.
Science Askew: A Light-hearted Look at the Scientific World (Institute of Physics Conference Series)
Copiously illustrated throughout with many fine drawings by John C. Holden, Science Askew: A Light-Hearted Look at the Scientific World is a refreshing antidote to the daily grind. From continental drip to the life of Konrad Finagle via the murky depths of Loch Ness, we are treated to an off-kilter trip through the scientific world. This pocket-sized goldmine can be produced whenever a spare minute or two presents itself, when the reader feels in need of a chuckle, or when just plain old-fashioned enlightenment is required.
$q$-Series: Their Development and Application in Analysis, Number Theory, Combinatorics, Physics and Computer Algebra (Cbms Regional Conference Series in Mathematics)
This book integrates recent developments and related applications in $q$-series with a historical development of the field, focusing on major breakthroughs and the author's own research interests. The author develops both the important analytic topics (Bailey chains, integrals, and constant terms) and applications to additive number theory. He concludes with applications to physics and computer algebra and a section on results closely related to Ramanujan's ``Lost Notebook.'' With its wide range of applications, the book will interest researchers and students in combinatorics, additive number theory, special functions, statistical mechanics, and computer algebra. It is understandable to even a beginning graduate student in mathematics who has a background in advanced calculus and some mathematical maturity.
Shipstar: A Science Fiction Novel (Bowl of Heaven Book 2)
The dramatic sequel to Larry Niven and Gregory Benford's New York Times bestselling novel, Bowl of HeavenScience fiction masters Larry Niven (Ringworld) and Gregory Benford (Timescape) continue the thrilling adventure of a human expedition to another star system that is jeopardized by an encounter with an astonishingly immense artifact in interstellar space: a bowl-shaped structure cupping a star, with a habitable area equivalent to many millions of Earths. And which, tantalizingly, is on a direct path heading toward the same system the human ship is to colonize.Investigating the Bowl, or Shipstar, the human explorers are separated—one group captured by the gigantic structure's alien inhabitants, the other pursued across its strange and dangerous landscape—while the mystery of the Shipstar's origins and purpose propel the human voyagers toward discoveries that transform their understanding of their place in the universe.At the Publisher's request, this title is being sold without Digital Rights Management Software (DRM) applied.
Narrow Gap Semiconductors: Proceedings of the 12th International Conference on Narrow Gap Semiconductors (Institute of Physics Conference Series Book 187)
Bringing together researchers from twenty-five countries, Narrow Gap Semiconductors: Proceedings of the 12th International Conference on Narrow Gap Semiconductors discusses the recent advances and discoveries in the science and technology of narrow gap semiconductors (NGS). In particular, it explores the latest findings in the fundamental physics of narrow gap materials and quantum heterostructures as well as device physics, including mid- and far-infrared lasers, detectors, and spintronic devices.This volume forms a solid presentation in several important areas of NGS research, including materials, growth and characterization, fundamental physical phenomena, and devices and applications. It examines the novel material of InAs and its related alloys, heterostructures, and nanostructures as well as more traditional NGS materials such as InSb, PbTe, and HgCdTe. Several chapters cover carbon nanotubes and spintronics, along with spin-orbit coupling, nonparabolicity, and large g-factors. The book also deals with the physics and applications of low-energy phenomena at the infrared and terahertz ranges. Continuing the high-quality tradition of this series, Narrow Gap Semiconductors covers all aspects of NGS to offer an authoritative, well-balanced perspective of this evolving field.
Computational Accelerator Physics 2003: Proceedings of the Seventh International Conference on Computational Accelerator Physics, Michigan, USA, 15-18 ... of Physics Conference Series Book 175)
This volume provides an overview of the state of the art in computational accelerator physics, based on papers presented at the seventh international conference at Michigan State University in October 2002. The major topics covered in this volume include particle tracking and ray tracing, transfer map methods, field computation for time dependent Maxwell's equations and static magnetic problems, as well as space charge and beam-beam effects. The book also discusses modern computational environments, including parallel clusters, visualization, and new programming paradigms. It is ideal for scientists and engineers working in beam or accelerator physics and related areas of applied math and computer science.
Reservoir Simulation: Mathematical Techniques in Oil Recovery (CBMS-NSF Regional Conference Series in Applied Mathematics)
Beginning with an overview of classical reservoir engineering and basic reservoir simulation methods, this book then progresses through a discussion of types of flows - single-phase, two-phase, black oil (three-phase), single phase with multi-components, compositional, and thermal. The author provides a thorough glossary of petroleum engineering terms and their units, along with basic flow and transport equations and their unusual features, and corresponding rock and fluid properties. The book also summarises the practical aspects of reservoir simulation, such as data gathering and analysis, and reservoir performance prediction. Suitable as a text for advanced undergraduate and first-year graduate students in geology, petroleum engineering, and applied mathematics; as a reference book; or as a handbook for practitioners in the oil industry. Prerequisites are calculus, basic physics, and some knowledge of partial differential equations and matrix algebra.
